"No loyalty anymore," GM Oshawas said they were betrayed in Windsor

At a meeting in Windsor on Friday, workers painted a picture of low morale at General Motors (GM) Oshawa and described a feeling of betrayal.

The event was one of Unifor's latest moves to show GM its disappointment and anger over the decision to close.

Dave Greenwood has been working with GM for 30 years. He said that people "cry in the race" and are no longer proud of being a GM worker.

"We are pious, we are GM loyal customers, GM's loyal employees and there is no loyalty back, it's a shame and shame at General Motors," Greenwood said.

"Everybody is supporting them, but at the end of the day it's fear, anxiety, panic, uncertainty."

GM Oshawa electrician Doug Lyon believes that the closing of the race will not stop at the Oshawa race.

"The only way to defeat these greedy people is to show solidarity and stick together," said Lyon, who asks why GM closes a plant that produces the highest quality product.

Greenwood said the laborers did everything they asked, including the introduction of a new truck for six months and a meeting with a good matrix.

"I'm really worried about the company I work for," Greenwood said.

Anto Bozic rejects claims made by GM about training opportunities for people who lose their jobs.

He said that workers who signed up for a similar program found that they were ineligible because they had tertiary education.

"It's a pot," Bozic said.

Lyon thinks what GM said about the fact that the thousands of Durham jobs that workers can go to are "completely lies."

And Cassie Lovelock, who was thrilled to attend a rally, does not know what to do next.

One thing he's sure about is that after he's a loyal GM customer all his life, he's not "more fidelity."

"You can bet not to buy GM at all," Lovelock said.
